CS Unitec offers a complete line of High-Quality Non-Sparking, Non-Magnetic and Corrosion-Resistant Safety Tools.

CS Unitec is a leader in special Copper Alloy Safety Hand Tools manufactured for use in high-risk areas where a spark can create a disaster.
CS Unitec Copper-Beryllium Tools (CuBe2) fulfill the demand in the ATEX directive for work in Zones 0, 1 and 2 (Gas, Mists or Vapors); Zones 20, 21 and 22 (Dusts); and M1 and M2 for mining. CS Unitec Aluminum-Bronze Tools (AlBr) fulfill the demand in the ATEX directive for work in Zones 1 and 2 (Gas, Mists or Vapors), plus Zones 21 and 22 (Dusts).

Zone Definitions
Gas, Mists or Vapors
Zone 0 - An atmosphere where a mixture of air and flammable substances in the form of gas, vapor or mist is present frequently, continuously or for long periods. Zone 1 - An atmosphere where a mixture of air and flammable substances in the form of gas, vapor or mist is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally. Zone 2 - An atmosphere where a mixture of air and flammable substances in the form of gas, vapor or mist is not likely to occur in normal operation but, if it does occur, will persist for only a short period.

Dusts
Zone 20 - An atmosphere where a cloud of combustible dust in the air is present frequently, continuously or for long periods. Zone 21 - An atmosphere where a cloud of combustible dust in the air is likely to occur in normal operation occasionally. Zone 22 - An atmosphere where a cloud of combustible dust in the air is not likely to occur in normal operation but, if it does occur, will persist for only a short period.

How to Choose the Correct Alloy for Your Application


Aluminum-Bronze (AlBr) Alloy
Zone Compatibility Hardness Durability Magnetic Properties Composition
Fulfill demand in ATEX directive for work in Zones 1, 2, 21 and 22 23-35 HRC Not as durable as CuBe. Low magnetism due to minimal ferrous components. Appropriate for non-critical non-magnetic applications. Al: 9.5-11% Fe: 3.5-5.5% Ni: 3.5-5.5% Other: 0.5% max Cu: Balance

Copper-Beryllium (CuBe2) Alloy


Fulfill demand in ATEX directive for work in Zones 0, 1, 2, 20, 21 and 22 33-45 HRC Very durable due to high hardness and tensile strength. Non-ferrous components; safer for applications demanding non-magnetic properties. Be: 1.8-2.1% Co + Ni: 0.6% max Other: 0.5% max Cu: Balance

MSDS (Safety Data Sheet) is available upon request. WARNING: Safety tools should not be used in contact with Acetylene. WARNING: Safety tools must only be ground or resharpened by companies approved for grinding such material, according to OSHA regulations.
